Erling Haaland's staggering goal tally at 22-years-old dwarfs both Lionel Messi's and Cristiano Ronaldo's haul at the same age.
The big Norwegian has set the Premier League alight thanks to his incredible form for Manchester City at the start of the season. Haaland has already netted 11 times in the Premier League, five more than second-placed Harry Kane and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
And those goals have helped Haaland take his all-time career tally to 170 – 120 more than Ronaldo had at the same age. While Messi had fewer sill, having only found the net 44 times at the same age as Haaland.

"I’ve never seen anyone like Haaland," Sven-Goran Eriksson told BoyleSports World Cup.
"He's very young, still, and if he can go on like this with no injuries, I think that's a big enemy to all footballers, he might be as famous, ranking at least, as Messi, Ronaldo and [Diego] Maradona because this guy has everything, and also seems to be mentally very, very strong.
"He takes everything around him with a smile and he looks very positive."

Haaland could topple another record over the weekend when he faces Manchester United. Should the 22-year-old find the net for City he will have the most goals in his first 10 Premier League games. Haaland is currently joint on 11 goals with Micky Quinn, Papiss Cisse, and Diego Costa – but he can take the record outright on Sunday.
